Rollercoaster physics – 15th March 2016

Did your golf ball loop the loop, or did it crash and bounce?

This afternoon we looked briefly at some of the careers involved in designing rollercoasters, built our own test track, and used data loggers to measure how fast the ball was travelling as it went round the roller coaster.
